    Accountant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Accountemps (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted application online. Got a call from a recruiter to come into office for in person interview. Easy interview. Lasted approximately 30 minutes. Was asked to discuss my resume and excel skills. They asked me to complete online application screening tool and W4 paper work because they placed quickly. Project I was offered was very entry level, pay was very low, and hours were 4pm to midnight. They would not reveal the client. Kept getting calls and emails from recruiter. They did not come back with any other opportunities.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The job offer and pay was too entry level. I had a graduate degree in accounting, and expected something more in line with my experience than entry level book keeping.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Accountemps in September 2014.

    Interview

    It's a super easy interview, most of my time was spending on the forms. After the interview, they scheduled me to have another interview with the company who hires the data entry clerk. The second interview was not difficult too, just regular questions, no unexpected things. They didn't choose me because they are more interested in the guy who has customer service experience.

    Interview

    After I applied couple positions online, one of the recruiters called me and set up an interview with me about one week later. Before the interview, they emailed me a link to complete a quiz. It is just basic knowledge about Word and Excel. During the interview, they just go through your resume and ask you about your desirable wage and interested companies. In the same week of the interview, they called me again, and got me on an assignment with an international company.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accountemps (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a division director, who referred me to the branch manager. She called to bring me back in, and I met with two more division managers and a regional manager, and shadowed a division director for a half hour. I was called back the next week and for a third round, and I met with the regional manager and branch manager again, then received an offer via telephone the next day.

    The interviews were straightforward, no tricky questions.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You could negotiate, but I chose not to, because you have to cover your base salary to earn commissions.
